Duration :

64

Summary: The courageous journey of Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus to save 50 Jewish children from the Nazis is chronicled in this inspiring film. A Jewish couple from Philadelphia, the Kraus's followed their consciences and trekked to Nazi-occupied Vienna and Germany in 1939 in an extraordinary effort to save the children from certain death. Featuring excerpts from Eleanor's journals plus photos, archival footage and interviews with many of the surviving children, this film reveals how Gilbert and Eleanor put themselves in harm's way to bring the largest known group of immigrants into the U.S. despite rigid laws against it.
